About

Methodist Children's Hospital is dedicated to serving the children and families of San Antonio, south Texas, and surrounding areas. We offer outstanding services in general pediatric care as well as many specialty areas including pediatric heart surgery, pulmonology, orthopedics, neurosurgery, newborn and pediatric intensive care, oncology, bone marrow transplant, rehabilitation, outpatient care, and emergency services. Family centered care is valued at MCH as we recognize that family is the most important part of a child's life. Parents and families are involved in every aspect of their child's care and they partner will the health care team to best meet the needs of the child.
Methodist Children's Hospital has been a part of the Starlight community for several years and has gratefully received Wii Fun Centers, helped educate and connect teenage patients through Starlight World, and helped patients see their dreams come true through Starlight Wishes. We would like to extend our partnership with Starlight Foundation's Wish List Program to be able to provide our patients with fun, entertaining, educational, and familiar toys, games, and activities. Play is the language and work of children. Play allows patients to exercise control over their environment through choice and mastery, it promotes continued growth and development, it encourages patients and families to actively participate in activities that are enjoyable, it provides opportunities for peer socialization and role-modeling, it provides diversion from the stress of hospitalization, it promotes self-esteem, it provides a safe environment for expression of feelings, concerns, and understanding, and it allows kids to be kids. Through the Wish List Program we hope to obtain toys, activities, and books for children of all ages to help them cope with hospitalization and continued healing.
